I just recieved the car and OMG does it sound good.

I had to get a police escort to park it at my friends house since it dosen't have the all important registration and what not. The car idled for about 15 minutes (had to boost battery so I could turn off) and the sound is exactly what I wanted. I was surprised how loud the sc is inside the car. It was a fun drive in the snow with the Yokohamma spec-2 tires. I wouldn't want to do that again though. The traction left something to be desired to say the least.
I give it a decent shot of fuel while I was idling and the boost almost instantly hit 10psi. Wow

I didn't realize the car had a secruity system and you know that was the first thing me and my friend did. You guessed it. We set it off.

I'm very excited about the upcoming project I just had to tell everyone.

The suspension feels alot tighter than mine even though I drove it a very short distance in the snow in 2nd gear. The suspension is apexi and tokico blues.

I love the sound of the SC. :) After a while, you don't notice it anymore. :(

If anybody will host them up for me I will email the pics to them. I don't have a clue how to post them up myself.

My friend was selling his sc and I bought it from him. It has an ae92 with hks pully and the suspension is done too. It has apex springs and tokico blues. There are other things like a phantom boost guage from autometer and a guage pod and some stereo stuff.

The pictures do the body more justice than it deserves. The other rear fender is real bad and the front air dam is rough and rusted too. The engine purrs though. ;)

I have a very good condition '87 sherwood green two tone car that the engine will be going in. My '87 has a tan interior too which I really like. The engine and suspension will be going on my '87 and my old parts are going in the orange car you see pictured. A very good friend of mine is getting the orange car with my old setup. He and I are going to work on it together. My n/a engine burns oil now so I figured I'd buy this car and get the sc swap and the suspension over with at the same time. The car has already had the swap done so fortunatly this will be plug 'n play for me.
